An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a web server how to act in particular cases. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites 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 website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your online presence.
