With an .htaccess file, you can define how the server which addresses the requests to your websites should act a number of cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you may block a specific IP address from opening your website, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to some other URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use personalized error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate efficiently.
