With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the server which deals with the requests to your web sites have to act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your Internet site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an illustration, you can block a specific IP address from opening your website, so 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 could also use custom error pages or shield any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
