An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a server how to operate in specific events. It needs to be placed in the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall show up instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
