An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a web server how to operate in specific cases. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your web presence.
