With an .htaccess file, you shall specify how the web server which handles the requests to your websites must act in a variety of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an illustration, you may block a specific IP address from opening the site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to some other URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use personalized error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven applications, including WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
