An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a server how to behave in certain occasions. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps employ such a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with customized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
