An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a server how to behave in specific cases. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps use such a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla™, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall appear 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 significantly better control over your web presence.
