With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the web server which addresses the requests to your web sites have to act in a variety 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. For example, you may block a specific IP address from accessing the Internet site, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to another URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use tailor-made error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
