An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a web server how to act in specific cases. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications employ this type of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom made 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 personalized error pages that shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
