An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular situations. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Many script-driven applications use such a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with customized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will show up instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your presence online.
