An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to operate in certain situations. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps use this type of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
