An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a web server how to operate in specific cases. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that will show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
