An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a server how to behave in specific occasions. It needs to be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will 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 new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your presence online.
