With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the web server which manages the requests to your Internet sites have to act in different occasions. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you may block a particular IP address from opening the website, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to an alternative URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also 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 well-known script-driven apps, like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
