An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a web server how to operate in certain cases. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps use this kind of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with customized 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 custom made error pages that shall appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your online presence.
