An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a server how to behave in specific occasions. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps use such a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with personalized content too 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 be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your presence online.
