With an .htaccess file, you can specify how the server that handles the requests to your web sites should act in a variety of scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For example, you could block a specific IP address from accessing the Internet site, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to another URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use customized error pages or shield any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, including WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to function correctly.
