With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the web server which addresses the requests to your web sites should act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when someone tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For instance, you may block a certain IP address from accessing the site, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You can also use personalized 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 applications, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
