An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a server how to act in specific events. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications use this kind of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom made content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your presence online.
