An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a server how to operate in particular events. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom made content too and do 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 shall show up rather than 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 will have far better control over your web presence.
