An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a server how to behave in particular situations. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications use this type of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with customized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
