An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a server how to act in certain events. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your online presence.
