With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the web server which handles the requests to your Internet sites must act in a variety of situations. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your Internet site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you can block a certain IP address from opening the site, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to a different URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
