With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the web server which deals with the requests to your web sites must act in a variety of situations. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an illustration, you could block a specific IP address from accessing the website, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to an alternative URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use customized error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
