An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a web server how to operate in specific cases. It should be placed into the folder in which these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps use this sort of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your web presence.
