This is a text file with directives that are performed when someone tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. For instance, you may block a certain IP address from accessing the site, which means that the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to some other URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom error pages or protect any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder.
