An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to behave in particular situations. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps use this sort of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with customized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
