An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a server how to operate in specific occasions. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this type of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with customized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your online presence.
