With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the web server that deals with the requests to your web sites must act in various scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you could block a particular IP address from opening the website, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to another URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use personalized error pages or secure any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, including Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
