This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you could 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 name to a different URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use personalized error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, like Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
