With an .htaccess file, you can define how the server which handles the requests to your Internet sites have to act in various cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when someone tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you can block a particular IP address from accessing the website, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to a different URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom-made error pages or secure any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, including Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
