An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to act in particular cases. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven applications use this kind of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with personalized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your presence online.
