An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a server how to operate in certain cases. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with customized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet 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 site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your online presence.
