With an .htaccess file, you can define how the server that deals with the requests to your websites have to act in different situations. This is a text file with directives that are performed when someone tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an example, you could block a particular IP address from opening the site, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to an alternative URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
