With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the server that addresses the requests to your Internet sites have to act a number of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you can block a specific IP address from opening your website, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to another URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom-made 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 applications, like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
