An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a server how to act in specific cases. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven applications use this kind of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall show up 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 and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your world-wide web presence.
