An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a web server how to operate in certain situations. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven applications use this kind of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will appear 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, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your presence online.
