An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a server how to act in particular occasions. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps use this kind of a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall show up instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
