An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to act in certain occasions. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
