An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to act in specific situations. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications employ such a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall be displayed 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.
