With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the web server which handles the requests to your websites must act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you may block a particular IP address from accessing the Internet site, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to a different URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom-made error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, like Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
