An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular situations. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps use such a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with personalized 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 tailor-made error pages which shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your presence online.
