With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the server which handles the requests to your websites must act in various scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For example, you could block a certain IP address from accessing the Internet site, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to an alternative URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom-made error pages or protect any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, such as Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
