An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a server how to behave in particular situations. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with customized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your web presence.
