An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to act in particular occasions. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps use this type of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall appear rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your world-wide web presence.
