An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a server how to operate in certain events. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps use such a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with custom made content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will show up 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 plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your online presence.
