With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the web server which handles the requests to your web sites must act a number of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you could block a specific IP address from accessing the site, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to a different URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or preserve any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
