An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a server how to operate in particular cases. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with custom content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your online presence.
