An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a server how to behave in particular cases. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps use this kind of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your web presence.
