With an .htaccess file, you shall specify how the web server which deals with the requests to your web sites have to act in a variety of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you could block a certain IP address from accessing your website, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to another URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use tailor-made 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 operate correctly.
