An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a web server how to operate in specific cases. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your online presence.
