An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a web server how to operate in certain cases. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your online presence.
