With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the server which handles the requests to your Internet sites must act in different situations. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an example, you could block a particular IP address from accessing the site, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to a different URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use personalized error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
