With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the server that handles the requests to your Internet sites have to act a number of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your Internet site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you can block a particular IP address from accessing the website, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to some other URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom-made error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
