With an .htaccess file, you'll specify how the web server that deals with the requests to your websites have to act in different situations. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you can block a particular IP address from opening the website, and the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to some other URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use tailor-made error pages or preserve any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many popular script-driven applications, including Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
