An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a web server how to act in particular events. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with personalized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your online presence.
