An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a web server how to behave in certain situations. It should be positioned in the folder where these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven applications employ this type of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
