With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the web server which handles the requests to your web sites must act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you can block a certain IP address from opening the site, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to another URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use personalized error pages or protect any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, like WordPress, Drupal™ and Joomla™, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
