An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to operate in specific situations. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall appear instead of the server-generated ones if 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.
