With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the server that addresses the requests to your websites should act in different occasions. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you may block a specific IP address from opening the website, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to some other URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom error pages or secure 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 function efficiently.
