With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the web server that handles the requests to your Internet sites should act in various situations. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you could block a specific IP address from opening the website, so 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 can also use customized error pages or protect any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, such as Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
