An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to act in certain occasions. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven applications use this kind of a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with customized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your web presence.
