An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a server how to operate in particular situations. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed.

You can use this kind of a file with custom made content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your online presence.
