With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the server that deals with the requests to your web sites must act a number of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you could block a specific IP address from opening your website, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to another URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom error pages or secure any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, including Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
