With an .htaccess file, you'll specify how the server that addresses the requests to your Internet sites should act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you can 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 a different URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom-made error pages or secure any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
