With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the server which deals with the requests to your Internet sites have to act a number of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For example, you can block a specific IP address from accessing your website, and the server will decline the 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 could also use personalized error pages or secure any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
