With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the web server which addresses the requests to your web sites must act in different situations. This is a text file with directives that are performed when someone tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For example, you can block a certain IP address from accessing the Internet site, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use customized 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 apps, like Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
