With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the web server that deals with the requests to your web sites should act a number of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you may block a particular IP address from accessing 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 redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
