An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to operate in certain occasions. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications employ this type of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom made content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall appear rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your online presence.
