With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the web server which manages the requests to your Internet sites have to act a number of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you may block a particular IP address from opening the website, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use personalized error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
