An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a server how to operate in certain cases. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with customized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
