With an .htaccess file, you will define how the server which addresses the requests to your Internet sites should act in various cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For instance, you can block a certain IP address from accessing your website, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You can also use customized error pages or preserve any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, including Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
