An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a web server how to operate in certain occasions. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps employ such a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with custom made content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall appear 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 presence online.
