An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a server how to behave in specific situations. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven applications use this kind of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla™, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will show up rather than 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 plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your web presence.
