An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a web server how to operate in specific events. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with customized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your web presence.
