With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the server which addresses the requests to your Internet sites must act in a variety of situations. 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 certain IP address from accessing the site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to some other URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use personalized error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
