An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a web server how to behave in certain cases. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps use this kind of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with custom content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that 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 plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your web presence.
