An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a web server how to operate in specific occasions. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven applications employ such a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
