With an .htaccess file, you can define how the server which addresses the requests to your web sites should act in a variety of situations. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you may block a specific IP address from accessing the site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to an alternative URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use customized error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, such as Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
