An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a server how to act in particular situations. It needs to be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps use this sort of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall appear 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, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your presence online.
