An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a server how to behave in certain occasions. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps use this type of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will show up rather than 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 plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your web presence.
