With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the web server that addresses the requests to your Internet sites should act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For example, you can block a specific IP address from opening the website, so the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to some other URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use tailor-made error pages or preserve any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
