An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a server how to operate in specific events. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with customized 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 that will show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your presence online.
