An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a server how to behave in specific cases. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications use this type of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with personalized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will show up instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your presence online.
