With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the server that deals with the requests to your websites have to act a number of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are performed when someone tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For example, you may block a particular IP address from accessing the Internet site, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use tailor-made error pages or secure any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, including Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
