An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to behave in specific situations. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your web presence.
