An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a web server how to behave in particular occasions. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven applications use this sort of a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your web presence.
