An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to behave in specific events. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps employ such a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your web presence.
