With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the server which handles the requests to your web sites have to act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an example, you could block a particular IP address from opening the website, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to some other URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use personalized error pages or preserve any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
