With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the server that addresses the requests to your Internet sites must act in a variety of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you may block a particular IP address from accessing your website, so the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to an alternative URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You can also use customized error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, including Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
