An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a server how to behave in particular events. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with personalized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your presence online.
