An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a web server how to behave in particular situations. It must be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven applications employ such a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your web presence.
