An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to act in specific occasions. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
