With an .htaccess file, you shall determine how the web server that deals with the requests to your Internet sites should act in a variety of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an example, you may block a particular IP address from opening the website, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to an alternative URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or protect any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
