An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a web server how to behave in particular occasions. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications employ this type of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with customized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your presence online.
