An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to behave in specific occasions. It must be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps use this type of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your presence online.
