With an .htaccess file, you'll specify how the web server that manages the requests to your web sites should act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out 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 certain IP address from accessing the Internet 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 may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use customized error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven applications, like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
