An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a server how to behave in specific situations. It should be put in the folder in which these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven applications use this type of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your web presence.
