An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to behave in certain cases. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps use this type of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your presence online.
