An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to behave in certain occasions. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps use such a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla™, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your web presence.
