An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a server how to behave in specific events. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven applications use this type of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with personalized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your presence online.
