An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a server how to operate in certain events. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your presence online.
