An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to behave in certain events. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven applications employ this type of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which will show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your world-wide web presence.
