With an .htaccess file, you can define how the server which manages the requests to your web sites must act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For instance, you may block a specific IP address from accessing the site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to some other URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use personalized error pages or protect any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
