An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to behave in particular situations. It should be positioned in the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps employ such a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with custom made content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that will appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your presence online.
