With an .htaccess file, you will define how the web server which manages the requests to your websites have to act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you could block a particular IP address from opening the Internet site, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to an alternative URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use customized error pages or secure 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 function efficiently.
