An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a web server how to operate in specific cases. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your web presence.
