An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to act in certain situations. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications employ such a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which will appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your world-wide web presence.
