An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a server how to act in particular occasions. It must be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps use this sort of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your world-wide web presence.
