An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to act in particular events. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom made content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall be displayed 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 and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
