An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a server how to act in certain events. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven applications use such a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall be displayed rather than the 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 and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your online presence.
