An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a server how to operate in certain situations. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which shall show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your online presence.
