With an .htaccess file, you'll specify how the server which deals with the requests to your websites must act in different situations. 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 could block a specific IP address from opening the site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to some other URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom-made error pages or protect any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
