An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a server how to operate in particular cases. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which will show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your online presence.
