An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a server how to behave in specific occasions. It needs to be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps use this sort of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom made content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, 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 far better control over your online presence.
