An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a web server how to operate in certain situations. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications employ this type of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your presence online.
