An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a server how to behave in certain events. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your web presence.
