With an .htaccess file, you can define how the server that deals with the requests to your websites have to 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 depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you can block a particular IP address from opening the website, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to a different URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use tailor-made error pages or protect any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, such as Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
