With an .htaccess file, you shall specify how the web server that handles the requests to your web sites should act a number of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you may block a particular IP address from accessing the website, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to another URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use tailor-made error pages or secure any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
