An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to act in specific occasions. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven applications employ this type of a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your web presence.
