An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular events. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven applications use this type of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your presence online.
