An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a server how to behave in certain events. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your web presence.
