An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a server how to behave in particular events. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with customized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case 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 more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your online presence.
