An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a web server how to act in certain events. It needs to be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps use this type of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will show up instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
