With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the web server which handles the requests to your Internet sites have to act in different cases. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For example, you may block a specific IP address from opening your website, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use personalized error pages or shield 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 WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
