An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to operate in certain events. It needs to be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. Many script-driven applications use such a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your online presence.
