With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the server which deals with the requests to your Internet sites should act in various cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For example, you could block a particular IP address from accessing the site, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain 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 shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven applications, like Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
