With an .htaccess file, you'll specify how the web server which addresses the requests to your websites must act in a variety of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you could block a certain IP address from accessing the website, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use tailor-made 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, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
