An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to act in certain events. It should be positioned in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven applications use this kind of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your presence online.
