With an .htaccess file, you'll specify how the web server which handles the requests to your web sites must act a number of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you could block a certain IP address from accessing the website, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use customized error pages or secure any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, including Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
