An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a web server how to act in specific occasions. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps use this type of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your web presence.
