An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to act in specific situations. It needs to be placed in the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps employ such a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your web presence.
