An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a web server how to behave in certain events. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be executed. Many script-driven apps use this type of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will show up rather than 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, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your presence online.
