With an .htaccess file, you shall determine how the server that addresses the requests to your web sites should act in a variety of situations. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For instance, you could block a specific IP address from accessing the Internet site, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to some other URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use customized error pages or secure any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
