With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the web server which addresses the requests to your websites have to act a number of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your Internet 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 the Internet site, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to some other URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom error pages or shield any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
