An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a web server how to behave in certain occasions. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications use this type of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new 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.
