With an .htaccess file, you shall specify how the web server which addresses the requests to your Internet sites must act in various situations. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you may block a specific IP address from accessing the Internet site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to an alternative URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven applications, like Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
