With an .htaccess file, you will define how the web server that handles the requests to your Internet sites have to act in different cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you can block a particular IP address from opening the Internet site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom-made error pages or preserve any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven applications, such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
