An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a server how to operate in specific situations. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps employ such a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your online presence.
