An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a server how to operate in particular situations. It needs to be placed in the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications use such a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla™, for example. You can use such a file with personalized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
