With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the server which handles the requests to your Internet sites should act in various occasions. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For example, you could block a specific IP address from accessing the site, which means that the server will decline your 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 could also use tailor-made error pages or protect any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
