An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a server how to operate in specific occasions. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications use such a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with customized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your presence online.
