An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to behave in particular events. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with personalized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your online presence.
