With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the server which addresses the requests to your websites should act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For example, you may block a certain IP address from opening the website, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to some other URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom error pages or preserve any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, like Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
