With an .htaccess file, you can define how the server that deals with the requests to your web sites must act in various scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you can block a specific IP address from opening your website, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or preserve any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, including Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
