David, here are some links to instructions regarding .htaccess:

https://bama.ua.edu/manual/howto/htaccess.html

I recently succeeded incorporating .htaccess into my site and I'm brand new
with Apache so it's not too hard.  You just have to do the research.

You can use two IPs for your local computer: http://localhost or
http://127.0.0.1

This address can be used from your browser to access the index if your local
computer is also serving your website (if you have an index--if not just
trail with /filepath/file.whatever).  This makes developing your site a lot
smoother because you don't have to upload your pages every time you want to
test them.

I have no idea how to find your real IP.
