An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a web server how to behave in specific occasions. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your online presence.
