With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the web server that addresses the requests to your Internet sites have to act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your Internet site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you can block a specific IP address from accessing the site, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to another URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, including WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
