An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a web server how to behave in certain events. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ such a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
