.htaccess and index.php
The file .htaccess at the root of the website configures a single entry point in the code for all requests: index.php. It also redirects all requests to the full www domain name of the website, if necessary. It can be edited to force a dialogue in HTTPS. index.php initializes the environment of the program and starts the execution of the request.
