With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the web server that addresses the requests to your websites should act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For instance, you could block a certain IP address from accessing your website, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to a different URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can 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, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
