    htaccess is a configuration file for use on web servers running the Apache Web Server software. When an htaccess file is placed in a directory which is in turn ‘loaded via the Apache Web Server’, then the htaccess file is detected and executed by the Apache Web Server software.

    .htaccess files (or "distributed configuration files") provide a way to make configuration changes on a per-directory basis. A file, containing one or more configuration directives, is placed in a particular document directory, and the directives apply to that directory, and all sub-directories thereof.
    These .htaccess files can be used to alter the configuration of the Apache Web Server software to enable/disable additional functionality and features that the Apache Web Server software has to offer. These facilities include basic redirect functionality, for instance if a 404 file not found error occurs, or for more advanced functions such as content password protection or image hot link prevention.

    In simple terms, using Redirect in an .htaccess file enables you to redirect users from an old page to a new page without having to keep the old page.

    htaccess is a very sensitive file of a website, it can make it or it can break it. It is helpful for the redirection for cannonicalization, without www to www website. Any webpage is outdated and you want to redirect it to the new page through 301 redirection you can redirect it. Its very important from SEO stand point.

    A permanent 301 redirect in your .htaccess file lets search engines and others know that an old link has been replaced by a new one. It's the recommended method for directing traffic from an existing page. Some common uses of a 301 .htaccess redirect: Redirect individual files on the same domain.

    Fix all 404 errors with help of .htaccess using 301 redirection code which is a permanent redirect which passes between 90-99% of link juice to the redirected page. 301 refers to the HTTP status code for this type of redirect.
