With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the server which manages the requests to your Internet sites have to act in different occasions. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For example, you may block a particular IP address from opening the Internet site, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to some other URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom-made error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
