An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to operate in specific occasions. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your presence online.
