With an .htaccess file, you'll specify how the server that manages the requests to your web sites must act in different occasions. 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 may 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 direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use customized error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
