With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the web server that deals with the requests to your web sites should act in various occasions. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For example, you could block a specific IP address from opening the Internet 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 direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use tailor-made error pages or protect any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
