With an .htaccess file, you will define how the web server which handles the requests to your websites have to act a number of cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you may block a certain IP address from accessing your website, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to some other URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use customized error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, including Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
