An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a web server how to operate in specific cases. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this type of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with customized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your online presence.
