With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the server that handles the requests to your websites should act in various cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an example, you could block a certain IP address from accessing the Internet site, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
