An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a web server how to act in specific situations. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven applications use this type of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with customized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will appear rather than the 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 plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
