An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a web server how to operate in certain occasions. It must be placed in the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps use this type of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your online presence.
