An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a server how to act in particular situations. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your world-wide web presence.
