An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to behave in certain situations. It needs to be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications employ this type of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with personalized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall show up instead of 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 much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your presence online.
