An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a server how to behave in particular cases. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications use this sort of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with personalized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
