An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a web server how to behave in certain situations. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your presence online.
