With an .htaccess file, you shall specify how the server which manages the requests to your Internet sites must act a number of occasions. 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. For example, you may block a specific IP address from accessing the website, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to some other URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use tailor-made error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
