An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a web server how to operate in particular situations. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications use such a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your online presence.
