With an .htaccess file, you will define how the web server which handles the requests to your Internet sites have to act in a variety of situations. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your Internet site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For example, you could block a particular IP address from accessing the website, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use personalized error pages or preserve 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, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
