An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a web server how to behave in particular situations. It must be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with customized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your presence online.
