With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the web server that handles the requests to your Internet sites must act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you may block a certain IP address from accessing your website, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to some other URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use customized error pages or secure any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
