An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a web server how to behave in specific cases. It must be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which will be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your online presence.
