An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a web server how to operate in particular events. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications use this type of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your online presence.
