An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a server how to behave in certain occasions. It should be positioned in the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your online presence.
