An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to act in specific events. It must be placed in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps use this kind of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with customized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
