With an .htaccess file, you will define how the server that manages the requests to your websites should act in a variety of situations. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an illustration, you may block a certain IP address from opening your website, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to an alternative URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use tailor-made error pages or preserve any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, like Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
