An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a web server how to act in specific cases. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps use this sort of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom made content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your online presence.
