An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to behave in particular cases. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
