With an .htaccess file, you will define how the server that handles the requests to your web sites have to act in different occasions. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For example, you could block a particular IP address from accessing your website, which means that 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. Also you can use custom-made error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
