With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the web server which addresses the requests to your websites should act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are carried out 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 accessing your website, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to some other URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom-made 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 WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
