With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the web server which manages the requests to your web sites have to act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your Internet site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an illustration, you may block a particular IP address from accessing the site, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to another URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom-made error pages or preserve any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
