An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a web server how to act in specific events. It must be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with custom made 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 custom made error pages that shall 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, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your presence online.
