An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a server how to operate in specific situations. It should be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps employ such a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom made content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall show up instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your web presence.
