With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the server which addresses the requests to your Internet sites should act in different scenarios. 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 could block a specific IP address from accessing the website, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to another URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use personalized error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
