An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a server how to behave in specific events. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be performed. Many script-driven applications use such a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
