With an .htaccess file, you shall specify how the server which addresses the requests to your web sites have to act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you can block a certain IP address from opening your website, so the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use customized error pages or shield 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, such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
