An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a server how to operate in particular situations. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications employ this type of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with customized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your online presence.
