An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a server how to act in specific cases. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which will show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
