With an .htaccess file, you will define how the server which addresses the requests to your web sites should act in various scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For example, you can block a particular IP address from opening the site, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom error pages or protect any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
