With an .htaccess file, you can define how the web server that addresses the requests to your web sites must act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you can block a certain IP address from opening the website, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to some other URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use tailor-made error pages or preserve any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, including Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
