With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the server which deals with the requests to your web sites must act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are performed when someone tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an illustration, you could block a particular IP address from accessing the site, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to some other URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use customized error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, including WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work efficiently.
