An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a web server how to behave in certain cases. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall appear rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your presence online.
