An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to act in certain occasions. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven applications use this sort of a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set customized 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 and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
