An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a web server how to act in particular situations. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your online presence.
