An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a web server how to behave in certain cases. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps employ such a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your presence online.
