An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a server how to operate in particular cases. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps employ such a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with personalized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your web presence.
