With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the web server that manages the requests to your web sites have to act in various situations. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you may block a specific IP address from accessing your website, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use personalized error pages or preserve any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
