An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular events. It must be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps use this type of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with custom made content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your online presence.
