An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a web server how to operate in specific cases. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven applications use this type of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will appear rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
