An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to act in specific cases. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your online presence.
