With an .htaccess file, you shall determine how the server which deals with the requests to your websites must act in various cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an example, you can block a specific IP address from opening the website, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to another URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or protect any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, including WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
