An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a server how to operate in certain situations. It must be placed in the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with personalized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your web presence.
