An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to operate in specific cases. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven applications use this type of a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with customized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your web presence.
