An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a server how to operate in particular situations. It must be placed in the folder where these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven applications use such a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with customized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom made 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 another web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your online presence.
