An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a server how to operate in specific events. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications employ such a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with customized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your presence online.
