An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to operate in certain events. It must be placed in the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your web presence.
