An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to behave in particular situations. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps employ this type of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with personalized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
