With an .htaccess file, you shall determine how the server that manages the requests to your Internet sites have to act in a variety of situations. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you could block a particular IP address from accessing the Internet site, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to some other URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use customized error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, including Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
