With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the web server that handles the requests to your web sites must act a number of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For instance, you could block a certain IP address from opening the website, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to another URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use customized error pages or protect any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, such as Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
