With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the server which manages the requests to your websites should act in different cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For example, you could block a certain IP address from opening the Internet site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use tailor-made error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
