With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the web server that handles the requests to your websites must act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For example, you may block a certain IP address from opening the site, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to an alternative URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
