With an .htaccess file, you will define how the server which handles the requests to your Internet sites must act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an illustration, you may block a particular IP address from accessing the website, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to a different URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom error pages or preserve any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
