An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a server how to behave in particular cases. It should be placed into the folder in which these directives should be executed. Many script-driven applications use such a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. 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 which shall show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your world-wide web presence.
