With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the web server which deals with the requests to your web sites have to act in various cases. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you may block a certain IP address from opening the Internet site, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to another URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom error pages or secure any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, like Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
