An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a web server how to operate in certain events. It should be positioned in the folder where these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps use this sort of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with customized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will show up instead of the server-generated ones in case 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 more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your presence online.
