An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a server how to operate in certain situations. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your web presence.
