An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular events. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps use this type of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your web presence.
