An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to operate in particular situations. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps employ such a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with customized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your online presence.
