With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the web server which addresses the requests to your websites must act in a variety of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an example, you may block a particular IP address from accessing your website, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to a different URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom-made error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
