With an .htaccess file, you will specify how the server which manages the requests to your websites must act a number of cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you could block a specific IP address from accessing the site, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to an alternative URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You can also use personalized error pages or preserve any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, like Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
