With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the web server that addresses the requests to your websites have to act in various scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For example, you may block a specific IP address from accessing the site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use personalized error pages or secure any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
