An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to behave in particular occasions. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven apps use this type of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your online presence.
