An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a server how to behave in specific situations. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that will show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your online presence.
