With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the server which manages the requests to your Internet sites must act in various occasions. 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 example, you may block a particular IP address from accessing the site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to some other URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom-made error pages or shield any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
