With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the web server which manages the requests to your Internet sites must act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For example, you may block a particular IP address from opening the site, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom-made error pages or preserve any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, like Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
