An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a web server how to operate in specific situations. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this type of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with customized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your online presence.
