An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to act in particular cases. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps employ such a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your web presence.
