An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a web server how to behave in certain events. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ such a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with customized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your web presence.
