An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to operate in certain cases. It must be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven applications employ such a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your presence online.
