An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to act in certain occasions. It should be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
