An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a web server how to behave in certain cases. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps use this type of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with personalized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
