An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular occasions. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications use this kind of a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with customized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your presence online.
