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