With an .htaccess file, you shall specify how the server which handles the requests to your websites have to act a number of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For example, you can block a certain IP address from accessing the Internet site, so the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to another URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use customized error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, including Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
