With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the server which handles the requests to your websites must act in different scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For example, you could block a specific IP address from accessing the website, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to another URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
