An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a server how to behave in particular events. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with customized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
