With an .htaccess file, you can define how the server that addresses the requests to your Internet sites have to act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an example, you can block a certain IP address from accessing your website, and the server will decline the 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 tailor-made error pages or preserve any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, including Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
