An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a web server how to behave in certain occasions. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps use this kind of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your presence online.
