An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular cases. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom made content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your presence online.
