With an .htaccess file, you will define how the server which handles the requests to your web sites must act a number of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you can block a specific IP address from opening the site, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to some other URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom-made error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, such as WordPress, Drupal™ and Joomla™, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
