With an .htaccess file, you will define how the web server that manages the requests to your websites must act in different cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an illustration, you could block a particular IP address from accessing your website, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to an alternative URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom error pages or preserve any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven applications, including WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
