An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a web server how to operate in certain events. It must be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications employ such a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall appear rather than 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 plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your online presence.
