An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a server how to behave in particular events. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with customized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your online presence.
