With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the web server that manages the requests to your Internet sites have to act in various cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an example, you can block a certain IP address from opening the website, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to an alternative URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use customized error pages or preserve any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
