An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a web server how to act in specific situations. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your presence online.
