With an .htaccess file, you can define how the web server that deals with the requests to your websites have to act a number of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you can block a particular 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 will direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use tailor-made error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
