An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a web server how to operate in certain events. It needs to be placed in the folder where these directives should be performed. Many script-driven applications employ this type of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
