An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a web server how to operate in specific occasions. It needs to be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications employ such a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
