An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a web server how to behave in certain situations. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your web presence.
