An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a server how to operate in particular occasions. It should be placed into the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps use this kind of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct 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.
