An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a server how to operate in particular cases. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom made content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your presence online.
