With an .htaccess file, you will define how the server that manages the requests to your web sites should act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you could block a particular IP address from accessing your website, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use tailor-made error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
