An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a server how to behave in certain events. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with personalized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your online presence.
