An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to operate in certain occasions. It needs to be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications use this kind of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with personalized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will show up instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your presence online.
