An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a server how to behave in specific cases. It should be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps use this sort of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your online presence.
