An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a web server how to act in particular occasions. It needs to be placed in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with customized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect 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.
