An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a web server how to operate in particular events. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps use this type of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that will appear 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 much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your presence online.
