With an .htaccess file, you shall determine how the server that manages the requests to your Internet sites should act a number of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are performed when someone tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an illustration, you may block a specific IP address from opening your website, so the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use tailor-made error pages or shield 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, such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
