An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a server how to operate in certain situations. It should be placed into the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps employ such a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom made content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your online presence.
