With an .htaccess file, you will define how the server which addresses the requests to your web sites should act in different cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when someone tries to open your Internet site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an illustration, you can block a specific IP address from accessing the site, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use customized error pages or preserve any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, such as Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
