An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a server how to operate in certain occasions. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven applications use this type of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, 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 shall have more effective control over your presence online.
