An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a web server how to act in specific occasions. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with customized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your web presence.
