An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular occasions. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps use this kind of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your web presence.
