With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the web server that handles the requests to your Internet sites should act in various scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you may block a specific IP address from opening the site, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to some other URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom-made error pages or protect any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
