An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to operate in particular events. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with customized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your web presence.
