An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a web server how to behave in particular events. It should be placed into the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your online presence.
