An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to act in particular occasions. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with customized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your web presence.
