With an .htaccess file, you'll specify how the web server which handles the requests to your Internet sites should act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an example, you may block a certain IP address from accessing your website, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to a different URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use customized error pages or preserve any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
