With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the web server which manages the requests to your Internet sites should act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you can block a specific IP address from accessing the site, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to a different URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use customized error pages or secure any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
