An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a web server how to act in specific situations. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your online presence.
