With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the web server that manages the requests to your websites have to act in different cases. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For instance, you may block a particular IP address from opening the Internet site, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom-made error pages or protect any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
