An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to operate in specific events. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven applications use this type of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your online presence.
