An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a web server how to operate in certain occasions. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications use such a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which will show up instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your presence online.
