An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a web server how to act in particular events. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven applications use this sort of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla™, in particular. You can use such a file with personalized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall show up instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your web presence.
