An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to operate in specific occasions. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your web presence.
