With an .htaccess file, you can define how the server which addresses the requests to your web sites should act in a variety of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you could block a particular IP address from opening your website, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to another URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use personalized error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
