With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the server that manages the requests to your web sites must act in different occasions. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For example, you could block a certain IP address from accessing the website, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to some other URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use personalized error pages or shield any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
