An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a web server how to act in specific cases. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your presence online.
