An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to operate in specific situations. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps employ this type of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with customized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your web presence.
