With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the server which addresses the requests to your web sites must act a number of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For instance, you could block a certain IP address from accessing your website, so the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to a different URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom-made error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, including Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
