An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to behave in certain occasions. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with personalized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case 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 more effective control over your online presence.
