An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a web server how to act in specific situations. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be executed. Many script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that will show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your web presence.
