With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the web server which addresses the requests to your web sites should act in different occasions. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you can block a particular IP address from opening the Internet site, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use customized error pages or secure any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
