With an .htaccess file, you can determine how the web server which manages the requests to your web sites have to act in various scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are performed when somebody tries to open your Internet site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you can block a certain IP address from accessing your website, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to an alternative URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, like Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
