An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular occasions. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven applications use this sort of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your presence online.
