An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a web server how to behave in certain situations. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven applications use this kind of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your online presence.
