An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular events. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps employ such a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with custom made content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which shall 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, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
