An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a server how to operate in certain occasions. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven applications use this type of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall appear rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your web presence.
