An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to act in specific events. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications use this sort of a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your presence online.
