An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a server how to behave in particular situations. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Many script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
