An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a web server how to act in specific situations. It should be placed into the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps use this type of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with personalized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which shall appear instead of the 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 and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your presence online.
