An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to behave in particular situations. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven apps employ this type of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with customized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your presence online.
