An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to behave in particular situations. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your online presence.
