An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to behave in certain events. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Many script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with personalized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your presence online.
