With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the server that addresses the requests to your web sites must act a number of cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an illustration, you may block a specific IP address from accessing the website, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use personalized error pages or shield any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven applications, such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
