An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a server how to act in certain situations. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which will show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your presence online.
