An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a server how to operate in certain events. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps employ such a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with customized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your web presence.
