An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a web server how to behave in particular occasions. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with customized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your web presence.
