With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the web server that handles the requests to your websites have to act in a variety of 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. For instance, you can block a certain IP address from accessing the Internet site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use customized error pages or secure any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, such as Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
