With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the web server that handles the requests to your websites must act in different cases. 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 may block a certain IP address from opening the Internet site, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to an alternative URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use personalized error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, including WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
