With an .htaccess file, you can define how the web server that deals with the requests to your web sites must act a number of cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an illustration, you could block a particular IP address from accessing your website, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to another URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use personalized error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, including WordPress, Joomla™ and Drupal™, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
