An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a server how to operate in certain cases. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven applications use such a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom made content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which will appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your presence online.
