An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a web server how to act in specific events. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall appear rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your presence online.
