An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a server how to behave in certain situations. It must be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this type of a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with personalized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
