With an .htaccess file, you'll specify how the web server that handles the requests to your Internet sites must act in various scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you can block a particular IP address from opening your website, so the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to an alternative URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use personalized error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
