An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a server how to act in particular cases. It needs to be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with personalized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct 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 online presence.
