With an .htaccess file, you will define how the server that addresses the requests to your web sites should act in various scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are performed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an illustration, you may block a certain IP address from opening the site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use personalized error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
