An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a server how to operate in particular cases. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven applications use this type of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your web presence.
