With an .htaccess file, you will define how the server that manages the requests to your Internet sites should act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you can block a specific IP address from accessing the site, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
