With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the web server that manages the requests to your websites have to act in various scenarios. 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 can block a particular IP address from opening the website, so the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use tailor-made error pages or shield any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven applications, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
