With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the server that manages the requests to your web sites should act a number of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you may block a specific IP address from accessing the site, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom-made error pages or preserve any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
