With an .htaccess file, you shall define how the web server which manages the requests to your websites have to act a number of situations. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an example, you may block a certain IP address from opening the Internet site, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use tailor-made error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven applications, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
