With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the server which deals with the requests to your Internet sites should act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you could block a certain IP address from opening the website, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom-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 applications, including Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
