An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a web server how to act in certain cases. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will be displayed rather than 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'll have far better control over your online presence.
