With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the server which manages the requests to your Internet sites have to act in a variety of situations. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you can block a certain IP address from accessing the site, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom-made error pages or protect any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
