An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a server how to behave in particular occasions. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven apps use this sort of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort 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 custom made error pages which shall appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your online presence.
