An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a server how to operate in specific occasions. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps use this sort of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom made content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
