With an .htaccess file, you can define how the web server which addresses the requests to your web sites should act in a variety of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed 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 opening the Internet site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use personalized error pages or secure any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
