An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to behave in particular occasions. It needs to be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps use this sort of 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 lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your world-wide web presence.
