With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the web server that deals with the requests to your Internet sites should act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your Internet site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For example, you can block a particular IP address from opening your website, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom error pages or preserve any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
