With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the server which addresses the requests to your Internet sites must act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your Internet site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you could block a specific IP address from accessing the website, so the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to another URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use personalized error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
