With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the web server which handles the requests to your web sites should act a number of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For instance, you could block a certain IP address from accessing the website, so the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to another URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom-made error pages or preserve any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
