An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to operate in certain cases. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven applications employ this type of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will show up rather than server-generated ones if 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 will have far better control over your presence online.
