An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a web server how to operate in particular situations. It needs to 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 perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with customized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your web presence.
