With an .htaccess file, you'll specify how the web server which addresses the requests to your web sites must act in different cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you may block a specific IP address from opening the website, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to some other URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, including WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
