An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a web server how to act in certain occasions. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven applications use such a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your world-wide web presence.
