An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a web server how to behave in certain occasions. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
