An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a web server how to act in certain occasions. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven applications use this kind of a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized 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'll have more effective control over your web presence.
