An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a server how to operate in particular events. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven applications employ this type of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your presence online.
