An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a web server how to behave in specific cases. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven applications employ this kind of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that 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 another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your online presence.
