With an .htaccess file, you'll specify how the server that deals with the requests to your websites should act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your Internet site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an illustration, you could block a certain IP address from opening the Internet site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use customized error pages or protect 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, like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
