An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a server how to behave in specific situations. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications use this type of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your online presence.
