With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the server that manages the requests to your Internet sites must act in various cases. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you can block a certain IP address from accessing the website, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to some other URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or shield any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
