An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a web server how to behave in particular events. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven applications employ such a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your presence online.
