An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a server how to operate in certain occasions. It must be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with custom content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect 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 much better control over your presence online.
