With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the server that manages the requests to your web sites have to act in a variety of situations. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an illustration, you can block a specific IP address from accessing the Internet site, so the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to another URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom-made error pages or shield any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, like Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
