An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular cases. It needs to be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with personalized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your presence online.
