An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a server how to act in specific occasions. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your presence online.
