An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a server how to operate in particular cases. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven apps use this type of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your web presence.
