With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the web server which manages the requests to your websites must act in various cases. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you may block a specific IP address from opening your website, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to a different URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom 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, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
