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