With an .htaccess file, you can define how the server which manages the requests to your web sites must act in a variety of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you may block a certain IP address from opening your website, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to some other URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
