An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a web server how to act in particular events. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps use this sort of 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, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your online presence.
