An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a web server how to operate in certain cases. It needs to be placed in the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications use such a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall show up instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your presence online.
