With an .htaccess file, you'll specify how the server that manages the requests to your web sites should act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For instance, you can block a certain IP address from accessing the website, and 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 tailor-made error pages or protect any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, including Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
