An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to behave in particular cases. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven apps use this kind of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. 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 particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your online presence.
