An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to operate in specific occasions. It must be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ such a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with customized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, 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 more effective control over your online presence.
