An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to behave in particular cases. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps employ such a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall show up rather than server-generated ones in case 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 more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your web presence.
