With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the server that handles the requests to your websites must act in various occasions. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you could block a particular IP address from accessing the site, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to some other URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom error pages or preserve any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
