An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a web server how to act in certain occasions. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven applications use such a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with customized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall appear rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
