An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to behave in particular situations. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps use such a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will appear rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your online presence.
