An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a web server how to behave in certain situations. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps use this kind of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla™, in particular. You can use such a file with personalized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your web presence.
