With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the server that manages the requests to your web sites have to act in various situations. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you could block a specific IP address from accessing your website, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to some other URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use tailor-made error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
