With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the server which deals with the requests to your Internet sites have to act in a variety of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you could block a specific IP address from opening your website, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to an alternative URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use customized error pages or preserve any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
