An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to act in certain events. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps use this type of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with custom content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall appear instead of the 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 much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
