With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the web server that manages the requests to your web sites must act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you can block a certain IP address from accessing your website, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to some other URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom 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, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
