An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to operate in specific cases. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications use this kind of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your online presence.
