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