With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the web server which deals with the requests to your websites must act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an example, you could block a particular IP address from opening your website, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to an alternative URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use customized error pages or protect any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
