An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to operate in particular events. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps use this sort of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such 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 which will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your online presence.
