An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a web server how to operate in certain situations. It needs to be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps employ such a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your presence online.
