An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a web server how to operate in specific cases. It must be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven apps use this sort of a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with custom made content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your presence online.
