With an .htaccess file, you shall determine how the server that handles the requests to your websites should act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an illustration, you may block a certain IP address from accessing the website, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use personalized error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, like Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
