With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the server that addresses the requests to your websites have to act in different situations. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you can block a specific IP address from opening the site, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use personalized error pages or protect any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, like Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
