An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to act in particular occasions. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven apps use such a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. 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 certain sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your web presence.
