An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a server how to behave in certain events. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with personalized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your presence online.
