An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a web server how to behave in particular events. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven applications use this type of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall show up instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your web presence.
