With an .htaccess file, you shall specify how the web server which manages the requests to your Internet sites must act in a variety of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you could block a certain IP address from accessing the website, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to some other URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use tailor-made error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven applications, including Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
