An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to operate in specific events. It needs to be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven apps use this type of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of 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 custom error pages that shall show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your presence online.
