With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the web server which manages the requests to your websites have to act in various occasions. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you can block a specific IP address from opening your website, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use tailor-made error pages or shield any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
