An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a web server how to operate in certain occasions. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps use this type of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with custom made content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
