An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a web server how to operate in specific events. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with custom made content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which shall appear rather than the server-generated ones if 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 plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
