An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a web server how to act in specific situations. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps employ such a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with customized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect 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 much better control over your world-wide web presence.
