An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a web server how to behave in specific situations. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your presence online.
