An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a server how to behave in certain events. It must be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven applications employ such a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with customized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
