An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to operate in certain cases. It must be put in the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps use this sort of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with personalized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which shall show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
