An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to act in specific situations. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
