With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the server that addresses the requests to your websites have to act a number of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you can block a specific IP address from opening your website, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to some other URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use tailor-made error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, including WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
