With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the web server which addresses the requests to your websites have to act in a variety of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For example, you can block a certain IP address from accessing the site, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or protect any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
