An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to behave in specific occasions. It should be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps use this sort of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with customized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which shall appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your online presence.
