With an .htaccess file, you can define how the web server that manages the requests to your websites must act in a variety of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an illustration, you may block a certain IP address from opening the website, so the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom error pages or preserve any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
