An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a server how to operate in certain occasions. It needs to be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications use this type of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your presence online.
