An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a web server how to act in certain cases. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps employ such a file to work correctly - 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, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your presence online.
