With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the server that deals with the requests to your web sites should act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For example, you can block a certain IP address from accessing your website, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom-made error pages or protect any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
