An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a web server how to operate in certain occasions. It should be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with customized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your web presence.
