An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a server how to operate in certain cases. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your web presence.
