With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the web server which addresses the requests to your Internet sites should act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For example, you can block a specific IP address from opening the website, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to some other URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use tailor-made error pages or secure any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
