An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a server how to operate in certain situations. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with customized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your web presence.
