An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular occasions. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven applications use this type of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort 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 that will show up instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your world-wide web presence.
