An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a server how to operate in certain situations. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this type of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your web presence.
