An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to act in particular cases. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps employ such a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with customized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your web presence.
