An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular situations. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps use this kind of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your online presence.
