An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular occasions. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps employ such a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall show up 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 and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
