An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a server how to act in specific events. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps use such a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your online presence.
