An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a server how to behave in specific occasions. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps use this kind of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will 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 more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your presence online.
