An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a web server how to operate in specific situations. It must be placed in the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with customized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your web presence.
