An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to behave in specific events. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Many script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your presence online.
