With an .htaccess file, you shall determine how the web server which deals with the requests to your web sites must act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you may block a certain IP address from accessing the site, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to another URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or protect any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, including Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
