With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the server that manages the requests to your web sites must act in various cases. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you may block a specific IP address from accessing the Internet site, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to an alternative URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use tailor-made error pages or preserve any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, like Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
