An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a web server how to behave in certain events. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ such a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will 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, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
