An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a server how to act in certain cases. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps use such a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with customized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your web presence.
