With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the server that handles the requests to your web sites have to act a number of cases. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you may block a particular IP address from opening the site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom-made error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate properly.
