With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the web server which deals with the requests to your websites should act in a variety of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your Internet site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an example, you could 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 name to a different URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use tailor-made error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, like Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
