An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a server how to operate in specific situations. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven apps employ such a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your presence online.
