With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the web server that deals with the requests to your Internet sites should act in different cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you could block a particular IP address from accessing the Internet site, so the server will decline the 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 may also use personalized error pages or preserve 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, like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
