With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the server which deals with the requests to your websites should act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For example, you may block a particular IP address from opening the website, which means that 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 may also use custom error pages or secure any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
