With an .htaccess file, you will define how the web server which deals with the requests to your web sites should act in different cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For instance, you may block a certain IP address from opening your website, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain 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 Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
