An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular cases. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications use such a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall appear rather than server-generated ones if 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 shall have more effective control over your online presence.
