An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a web server how to act in particular cases. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your online presence.
