An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a server how to behave in certain events. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to perform 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 sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that will appear rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your web presence.
