With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the web server that addresses the requests to your websites should act in a variety of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For example, you may block a specific IP address from accessing the website, so 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 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 applications, like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
