An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a web server how to behave in certain cases. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps use such a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that will show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your presence online.
