With an .htaccess file, you'll specify how the server that deals with the requests to your Internet sites should act a number of cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you may block a specific IP address from opening the website, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to some other URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom-made error pages or shield any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven applications, such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
