With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the server which handles the requests to your websites must act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you may block a particular IP address from opening the website, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to another URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use tailor-made 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 Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
