An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a web server how to behave in specific situations. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven applications use this sort of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will appear rather than the server-generated ones if 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 plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your web presence.
