With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the web server which handles the requests to your websites must act in various scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For example, you may block a specific IP address from opening your website, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to some other URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use customized error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, like Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
