An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a web server how to behave in particular events. It should be placed into the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps use this kind of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with customized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your web presence.
