An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to operate in certain events. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications use such a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with customized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which will show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your online presence.
