An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a server how to act in specific cases. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your web presence.
