An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a server how to act in particular occasions. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. 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 websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your online presence.
