An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to operate in certain cases. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your web presence.
