An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a server how to operate in certain events. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps employ this type of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall appear rather than 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 much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your presence online.
