An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to act in particular occasions. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with custom content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your web presence.
