An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a server how to behave in certain events. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your presence online.
