With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the web server which deals with the requests to your web sites have to act a number of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your Internet site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For example, you may block a specific IP address from accessing the Internet site, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or shield 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 operate properly.
