With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the server that deals with the requests to your Internet sites have to act in various cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For example, you may block a specific IP address from opening the site, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to another URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use personalized error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
