An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a web server how to act in certain events. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps employ such a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with customized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
