With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the server which handles the requests to your websites must act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when someone tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you may block a specific IP address from opening 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 will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom-made error pages or secure any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, including Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
