An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to act in certain events. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your web presence.
