With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the server that manages the requests to your web sites have to act in various situations. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you can block a specific IP address from opening the site, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to an alternative URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom error pages or preserve any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
