With an .htaccess file, you'll specify how the server which deals with the requests to your web sites must act in various scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are performed 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 opening the site, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to some other URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use personalized error pages or secure any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven apps, like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
