An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a server how to behave in specific events. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Many script-driven apps employ this type of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with customized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your online presence.
