An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a web server how to operate in certain occasions. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications use this type of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with personalized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will appear 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, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your presence online.
