An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a web server how to behave in particular events. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps use this sort of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your online presence.
