An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to operate in particular occasions. It must be placed in the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. 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 particular sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct 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 much better control over your online presence.
