An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a server how to behave in certain cases. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps use this kind of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will be displayed instead of 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 more effective control over your online presence.
