An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a web server how to operate in specific cases. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps employ such a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your web presence.
