An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a web server how to act in particular situations. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Many script-driven applications employ such a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom made content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your world-wide web presence.
