An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a server how to behave in specific cases. It should be placed into the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven applications employ this type of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your presence online.
