An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to operate in specific cases. It must be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with customized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your presence online.
