An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a server how to operate in specific situations. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
