With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the server that manages the requests to your web sites have to act in a variety of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For instance, you can block a specific IP address from opening the site, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to a different URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom error pages or shield any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
