An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a server how to act in particular cases. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps employ such a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your web presence.
