An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a web server how to act in specific situations. It must be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven applications employ such a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall appear instead of 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 much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your online presence.
