With an .htaccess file, you shall specify how the web server that manages the requests to your web sites must act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For example, you may block a specific IP address from opening the Internet site, so the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use customized error pages or preserve any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
