An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a server how to operate in particular situations. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps use this type of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with customized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will appear 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, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your web presence.
