An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to act in particular occasions. It must be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven applications use this type of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your online presence.
