An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a web server how to act in specific cases. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps use such a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall appear rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your presence online.
