An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to operate in certain events. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven applications use this kind of a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with personalized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your online presence.
