An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a server how to behave in specific events. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps use this type of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
