An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to operate in particular events. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your world-wide web presence.
