An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a server how to act in particular situations. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with customized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your online presence.
