An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to act in particular occasions. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps employ such a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with custom content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your web presence.
