With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the server which deals with the requests to your web sites have to act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you could block a particular IP address from opening the site, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can 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 widespread script-driven apps, such as Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
