An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to operate in particular situations. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps use this type of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with custom made content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
