An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a server how to act in certain events. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort 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 tailor-made error pages that shall appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
