An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to operate in certain situations. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven applications use this kind of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom made content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your web presence.
