An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to behave in certain events. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications use such a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with personalized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your online presence.
