An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a web server how to operate in certain occasions. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps employ such a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with customized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your online presence.
