An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to act in certain situations. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps use this sort of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with personalized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your web presence.
