An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a server how to behave in certain cases. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven applications use this kind of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom 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 different web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your presence online.
