An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a web server how to act in particular events. It must be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps use this sort of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your online presence.
