An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a server how to act in particular situations. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven applications use this kind of a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
