With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the server which deals with the requests to your websites must act in various situations. 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 example, you may block a specific IP address from accessing the site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to some other URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also 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 Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
