An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a web server how to behave in particular cases. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps use this sort of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your online presence.
