An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a web server how to act in certain situations. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to function correctly - 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, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
