With an .htaccess file, you will define how the server which deals with the requests to your Internet sites should act in different situations. This is a text file with directives that are performed when someone 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, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to some other URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use customized error pages or protect any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, such as Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
