An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a server how to behave in specific cases. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps employ this type of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites 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, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your presence online.
