An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a server how to act in certain occasions. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications use such a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with customized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your presence online.
