With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the server which addresses the requests to your Internet sites should act in different cases. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you can block a specific IP address from accessing your website, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to another URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You can also use personalized error pages or secure any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, like Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
