With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the server that manages the requests to your Internet sites should act in various scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you can block a particular IP address from opening the website, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to a different URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom-made error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
