An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a server how to behave in specific events. It must be put in the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with customized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that will show up instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your web presence.
