An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a web server how to act in particular situations. It should be placed into the folder in which these directives should be executed. Many script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your web presence.
