With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the server which handles the requests to your websites have to act in different occasions. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your Internet site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you could block a specific IP address from opening your website, and the server will decline your 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 can also use tailor-made error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
