An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a web server how to act in certain situations. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will show up rather than server-generated ones if 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 more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your online presence.
