An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a web server how to act in particular cases. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
