An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to behave in particular occasions. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps use this sort of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with customized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct 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 web presence.
