An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a server how to act in certain situations. It must be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven apps employ such a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with customized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
