With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the web server that deals with the requests to your Internet sites have to act in different situations. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your Internet site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For instance, you can block a particular IP address from accessing the site, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use tailor-made error pages or preserve any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, such as Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
