With an .htaccess file, you shall determine how the web server that addresses the requests to your websites have to act in different cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you could block a certain IP address from opening your website, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to some other URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use tailor-made error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, including Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
