An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a web server how to act in particular occasions. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications employ such a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your online presence.
