An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a web server how to act in specific events. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Many script-driven applications use such a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your online presence.
