An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to behave in particular cases. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven applications use this kind of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with customized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
