An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a server how to operate in particular occasions. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
