With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the web server which handles the requests to your web sites must act in various occasions. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an illustration, you can block a particular IP address from accessing your website, which means that the server will decline the 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 could also use tailor-made error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, including Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
