With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the web server that addresses the requests to your Internet sites have to act in various situations. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you may block a particular IP address from opening the website, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to another URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom-made error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
