An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a server how to operate in particular situations. It must be put in the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps use this kind of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla™, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will appear rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
