With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the server which handles the requests to your websites should act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your Internet site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you can block a specific IP address from accessing the site, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom-made error pages or preserve any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
