An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to behave in particular events. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications use such a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with customized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall appear rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your online presence.
