With an .htaccess file, you shall specify how the server which addresses the requests to your websites must act in a variety of cases. 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 illustration, you could block a specific IP address from opening your website, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to another URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
