An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to behave in particular situations. It should be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven applications use this sort of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with customized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
