An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a server how to behave in specific cases. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps employ this type of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with customized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your world-wide web presence.
