An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to behave in particular cases. It must be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven applications use this kind of a file to perform correctly - 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, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will appear instead of the server-generated ones if 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 much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
