An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a web server how to operate in certain occasions. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your online presence.
