With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the web server that manages the requests to your websites should act in various scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you could block a specific IP address from accessing your website, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to another URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use customized error pages or preserve any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
