An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a server how to act in particular occasions. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven apps employ this type of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your web presence.
