With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the web server that addresses the requests to your Internet sites have to act a number of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an illustration, you can block a particular IP address from accessing your 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 may also use personalized error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
