With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the server that addresses the requests to your websites should act in different cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you could block a certain IP address from opening your website, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to another URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use personalized error pages or preserve any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, including WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
