An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a web server how to behave in certain situations. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps employ such a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with customized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your presence online.
