With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the web server which addresses the requests to your Internet sites must act a number of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an example, you could block a particular IP address from opening the website, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to a different URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You can also use customized error pages or preserve any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
