With an .htaccess file, you will define how the web server which deals with the requests to your websites must act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For example, you could block a specific IP address from opening the website, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to a different URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use customized error pages or protect any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, like Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
