An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a web server how to behave in specific events. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this type of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which shall show up rather than server-generated ones in case 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 more effective control over your presence online.
