This is a text file with directives that are executed when someone tries to open your site and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you may block a specific IP address from accessing the website, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to a different URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use customized error pages or protect any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven applications, including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
