An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a server how to operate in specific situations. It should be placed into the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications use this kind of a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another 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.
