An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a web server how to act in specific situations. It must be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which shall appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your presence online.
