An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a web server how to act in certain events. It should be positioned in the folder where these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your presence online.
