An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to behave in specific occasions. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps use such a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with personalized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect 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.
