An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a web server how to behave in specific situations. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with custom made content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which shall appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
