With an .htaccess file, you shall determine how the server which manages the requests to your Internet sites have to act in various cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your Internet site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For instance, you may block a specific IP address from opening the Internet site, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to another URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom-made error pages or preserve any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
