An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a server how to act in certain events. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Many script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall appear 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, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
