An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a web server how to act in particular cases. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven applications employ such a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your online presence.
