With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the web server which deals with the requests to your web sites should act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For example, you may block a particular IP address from opening the Internet site, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to another URL, so the server will direct 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 widespread script-driven apps, including Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
